Yesterday we saw how those who achieve mastery embrace simplicity.
Another practice of top performers is they understand the power of routine. I mentioned in Wednesday’s post that the Loveless Cafe has mastered the art of making biscuits … over and over, day after day, biscuit after biscuit.
Routines are underrated. Most view them as duty, never quite understanding their power. Have you taken the time to identify your routines? If so, do you approach them with diligence?
Aristotle once wrote, “For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” Mozart is credited with saying, “It is a mistake to think that the practice of my art has become easy to me. I assure you, dear friend, no one has given so much care to the study of composition as I. There is scarcely a famous master in music whose works I have not frequently and diligently studied.”
There is a reason Aristotle and Mozart are still talked about today and viewed as masters. They both made the choice all great leaders make – they leaned into the power of routine.
Perhaps you should do the same.
